The streets of Cardiff were brought to a colourful standstill on Saturday as record numbers attended Pride Cymru.

A one-mile long parade, including an inflatable unicorn and a dragon made up of balloons, snaked through the city.

People on colourful floats and holding banners and flags enjoyed the carnival atmosphere.

Peter Jenkins, attending his 19th Pride Cymru, said: "I have seen it grow and grow. I never, ever thought we would get to this stage".
